Re: Ketogenic DietNo but I have to ask the question who is making these decisions on her diet? Is it a doctor/ dietician? If not it sounds like she needs to be seeing very seriously qualified professional people with her condition. This poor lady is 165 kilograms. That is more than twice as heavy as me at 80kg.. 178 cm/ 5 foot 10 inches. She needs serious help. Sounds like it's not working
Re: Ketogenic DietHi
Re: Ketogenic DietI've heard of it.
Re: Ketogenic DietI think the Lighter Life diet works on getting people into what they call ketosis by limiting calorie intake to about 450 to 500 per day....it's how Denise Welch on Loose Women lost her weight ...She looked great when she lost it but I noticed she seems to have gained a lot back.
Re: Ketogenic DietPersonally Tabby I wouldn't entertain any kind of restrictive diet, but then, I'm not 26 stone and if you exercise regularly you need to put back what the activity takes out or it's a spiral to oblivion......
Re: Ketogenic DietI went to Lighter Life for a month and it almost brought me to my knees. I lost 2 stone in that month but it affected my overall health. Plus it was £70 a week. YES I did say a week. For that you got a weeks supply of your shakes and soups got weighed and had an hour in a learning about health and the diet in the class. Also you had to get your Doctor to sign a form to say you were fit for the diet and then you had a monthly health form your doctor had to check you and sign. She was not happy about all that and I didn't blame her, they are far too busy for Lighter Life's checking. These days I have kept it off.....mostly and if I feel I need a quick fix I do a few days on a water fast. But mostly I eat healthy and swim, walk, and work with himself when needed. It's not a diet to go for unless your fully aware of how it will affect you, meaning the hunger aches, mood swings, tiredness.
Re: Ketogenic DietAfter finding out I was at the top of the pre-diabetic risk scale the diabetic team at my GPs recommended the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme. On that course (free) I learned so much about food and how that is processed by our bodies. It was not so much that I was eating junk food as I wasn't. It was good food but not knowing anything much about food, cooking or healthy eating plus necessary exercise, over time the weight had gone on and resulted in high blood sugar levels.
